Spain’s first outdoor skydiving simulator in Campillos, Malaga has opened its doors to the public for the first time.
The acting mayor, Francisco Guerrero and the deputy mayor, Maria Antonia Dominguez, opened the facility called Fly4Real, in Campillos which is currently home to the popular go-kart track, KartCenter.
The centre in Andalucía is perfect for thrill-seekers and adrenaline junkies alike. What’s more, it’s also ideal for the whole family and suitable for ages between five and 95 years.
There are a variety of options on offer, meaning it is perfect for beginners or those who are training to skydive for real. It works by using a vertical wind tunnel, situated outdoors - air blasts through the tunnel to lift your body into the air. An instructor can then help you to turn and move in the tunnel to experience exactly what freefall skydiving is really like.
Fly4Real hopes to recruit local people from Campillos and to give opportunities to the region. Director of Fly4Real, Rubio Carmona Antonio says; “The job of a wind tunnel instructor is a complicated one, and our objective is to train people from Campillos to take part in this project and give opportunities to people in the region which has welcomed us so warmly.”
The mayor adds; “For Campillos it is essential to improve its tourist offering, and this is a very important boost and a great challenge for our municipality.”
